<em>Is there a "coolness" factor with using abbreviations?</em>

Top Comment

Not for me, it just saves on typing on small devices. You gotta love how kids adapted it though. Adults made small texting devices yet attempted to write punctuated sentences on them like they were writing a letter. Kids came along and said omg idky ur doing this lol

That makes sense. So is it difficult for you to type sentences in long form? After you've worked on your cell phone.

I'm usually ok and I'm a faster typist, but sometimes I slip into an abbreviation, especially on here.

I know people that use them so often that it is like reading some kind of secret code.

Maybe .... but I don't know what most of them mean, so the "coolness" goes over my head. (hehe)

Using as little punctuation as possible seems to be even cooler
